If accounting and bookkeeping isn’t something you enjoy, I always recommend hiring a bookkeeper to help you keep your records straight and benchmark the growth of your business. Still, I respect that it’s sometimes just not in the budget for emerging entrepreneurs. Enter Kashoo. For simple, easy cloud accounting on the go, their service is easy to use and affordable, and their customer support team is top notch.
We’ve been using Kashoo for two years. Even though we have a bookkeeper now, I love using Kashoo to track monthly profits and compare last year’s performance to this year’s. You can meet Kashoo at Idea to Open on November 27 – don’t forget to grab your ticket if you haven’t got it yet!
1. Who are you and what’s your company?
Kashoo is simple cloud accounting for small business—on the web and on the App Store’s most downloaded accounting iPad app.
2. How do you help small business owners who are just starting out?
Accounting! Accounting is the lifeblood of any small business. Kashoo is double-entry accounting (fancy phrase for “accountant standard”) yet still easy to use. Our iPad app lets small business owners tackle their finances—from cranking out an invoice to pulling up reports—from anywhere, anytime.
3. What do you most love about the work you do?
Knowing that we build software that helps small businesses succeed and getting to meet and talk those small business owners.
4. What is your best piece of advice for would-be entrepreneurs?
Pay attention to your business finances from Day One. It’s easy to procrastinate, but the longer you do that, the more trouble you’ll find yourself in down the road.
5. What is your favourite little-known resource for entrepreneurs?
Not many entrepreneurs are great accountants. If they were, they’d be accountants, right? To that point, we have a massive library of support content that can help small business owners not only use Kashoo but also better understand how important sound accounting is to the health and success of their business.
6. In your opinion, how important is planning to the success of a small business in its first year or two?
Planning is certainly important, but it usually stands true that the only thing you can plan for in business is the unexpected. That said, we believe that measuring your business and extracting actionable insights from those measurements can help you best plan.
